An Investigation Of Dx Cooling Coil Inherent Characteristics, Krittima Santiwattana 2016 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

An Investigation Of Dx Cooling Coil Inherent Characteristics, Krittima Santiwattana

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

DX cooling coil (DCC) systems have dominated light commercial and household applications in the U.S for several decades. Approximately 14.5% of energy use is consumed by space cooling in commercial buildings, whereas 87% of households are installed with air-conditioners. Improper installation, poor design, and lack of optimized control/operations incur faults in HVAC systems causing 25% to 50% energy waste in a building. These consequences are subject to inefficient equipment modelling of which is developed from: (1) insufficient understanding in equipment characteristics, (2) uncertainties in testing environment and data, and (3) access and cost limitations. Therefore, in this ...

Measuring Access To Employment To Guide And Evaluate Public Transit Service Planning In New Orleans, Kevin Harrison 2016 University of New Orleans

Measuring Access To Employment To Guide And Evaluate Public Transit Service Planning In New Orleans, Kevin Harrison

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

New software and technology is making it easier than ever before for public transportation planners to evaluate how quickly residents can reach jobs and other destinations. Because in the past it was difficult to measure access to opportunities, these concepts remained primarily in the theoretical and academic realms of research. This thesis reviews methods that could be used to evaluate routine bus service improvements and performs a comparative analysis of different methods in the context of New Orleans. There are many different variables in how the analysis could be performed, but this thesis focuses on the role that time of ...


Gra[In]Vincible, Kimberly Ann Wojcik 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Gra[In]Vincible, Kimberly Ann Wojcik

Masters Theses

This thesis is about the stitching of a community back together at a scale that is appropriate to the existing demographics. The memory of place and time are still evident in the relics that are the Buffalo Grain Elevators; the only changing variable is the rate of population and affordability in the adjacent Old First Ward.

The economic downturn of big business and the havoc it wreaked on the worker community created a ripple effect in large enough scale to grab hold of an entire city. In an attempt to bulldoze rust covered structures and knock down abandoned homes rather ...


“The Dreaming Long View And The Arresting Close-Up”: The Eggleston Cultural Center On South Main Street, Memphis, Madeline Cynthia Jones 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

“The Dreaming Long View And The Arresting Close-Up”: The Eggleston Cultural Center On South Main Street, Memphis, Madeline Cynthia Jones

Masters Theses

The work of two of the South’s preeminent artists — one an author, the other a photographer — converge to form the thesis of this project. The internationally recognized photographer William Eggleston (b. 1939) was born and resides in Memphis, Tennessee, which is at times the subject of his art. Eudora Welty (1909- 2001), of nearby Jackson, Mississippi, is one of the great 20thcentury authors that the South produced; she stands among the southern pantheon alongside Tennessee Williams, William Faulkner, and Flannery O’Connor. Welty observed of Eggleston’s work:

All the photographs have place as their subject. ...In landscapes, cityscapes ...


Where Should Students Live? A Student Housing Site Suitability Analysis In Ames, Iowa, Laurelin Haas 2016 Iowa State University

Where Should Students Live? A Student Housing Site Suitability Analysis In Ames, Iowa, Laurelin Haas

Honors Projects and Posters

In Ames, Iowa, the growing student population has placed new demands on the city’s housing, and urban planners are challenged to meet the needs of the current student population while also planning for the continued demand for student housing in the future. In order to determine appropriate locations for further student housing development, a site suitability analysis based on five spatial criteria was conducted using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial statistics. Specifically spatial criteria included clusters of student population, zoning, public transportation, bikeways, and flood hazard. Three scenarios of development were explored, including an equal weight scenario, a ...


Museum 4.0 As The Future Of Steam In Museums, Mark Walhimer 2016 Tecnológico de Monterrey

Museum 4.0 As The Future Of Steam In Museums, Mark Walhimer

The STEAM Journal

Informal STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities (programs) and exhibits are common in science centers, children’s museums and natural history museums. As museums change to Museum 4.0 models (1), the STEAM exhibits and programs in museums also change. Museums 4.0 is the transformation of museums from a monolithic fixed location institution to a nimble community driven event driven organization. The Museum 4.0 becomes personalized to the visitor without fixed outcomes and without the physical restrictions of a single fixed location. As museums evolve to a Museum 4.0 model with visitor lead activities, STEAM ...

Poe: Bioclimatic Design For Sustainability, Hazreena Hussein, Adi Ainurzaman Jamaludin

Hazreena Hussein

Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) by using a set of questionnaire was conducted to assess the perception and comfort level required by residents in a college building with the best practice of bioclimatic design strategies. The survey was based on a five-point Likert scale, covering various performance criteria of the building (architectural elements, thermal comfort, indoor air quality, visual comfort, acoustic comfort and landscape features). The positions of the rooms should be highly considered in implementing the improvement measures for increasing the comfort level of the room when this aspect considerably influences the satisfaction and perception levels of respondents.

Future Oriented Sustainable Design. Design Purpose: What Is Design And Who Is It For? [Please Note: This Is A Large File And May Be Slow To Download.], Barry Sheehan

Academic Articles

In November 2016 I was asked to make a presentation at the Future Oriented Sustainable Design International Conference in Wuhan in the People's Republic of China. My topic was Design Purpose: What is Design? And who is it for?

The presentation examines the wider aspects of design and its categories and asks who were are actually designing for.

I made a powerpoint presentation that I narrated in English whilst it was simultaneously translated into Chinese for the attendees at the conference. On my return to Ireland I created a soundtrack to accompany the presentation slides for people to watch ...

You’Ll Like The Tenancies Bill And Poppintree Build, But Not A Lot, Lorcan Sirr

Media

Two things exercised my brain this week, both of which reminded me of a late, lamented magician. The first is the government’s Planning and Development (Housing) and Residential Tenancies Bill 2016. This is the bill that will send planning applications for 100 or more residential homes directly to An Bord Pleanala. As I have said before, this will not be the panacea for a perceived problem, mostly because the problemdoes not exist. In 2015, 985 appeals in relation to residential developments were made to An Bord Pleanala, and about 75% of judgments confirmed the local authority’s decision. Indeed ...


Towards A Pedagogy Of Comparative Visualization In 3d Design Disciplines, James Birt, Jonathan Nelson, Dirk Hovorka 2016 Bond University

Towards A Pedagogy Of Comparative Visualization In 3d Design Disciplines, James Birt, Jonathan Nelson, Dirk Hovorka

James Birt

Spatial visualization and interpretation are important skills for designers. However, these skills generally require significant experiential development over the course of years. Visualizations allow the human brain to convey complex spatial concepts in intuitive, navigable and manipulable forms improving learner outcomes and perceptions. But often these visualizations are studied as single modality solutions. Dual modality and multimedia presentation studies show positive improvements in learner outcomes but dual modality is often difficult to compare. This paper presents ongoing research in the use of comparative multimodal visualizations produced with emerging technology solutions in 3D Design classrooms. Presented are previous findings from multimedia ...


We Should Heed Research Into What’S Happening In Rural Areas, Lorcan Sirr 2016 Dublin Institute of Technology

We Should Heed Research Into What’S Happening In Rural Areas, Lorcan Sirr

Media

Ireland’s rural population has increased by just over 19%in the past 20 years, according to Teagasc, the state research body for the food and agriculture sector. A study, carried out by Dr David Meredith, senior researcher at Teagasc, looked at rural Ireland —its economy and where people are going to live. Media reports tend to focus on specific components of population decline, especially the headlinegrabbing “Can’t even field a GAA team” line, which focuses on young men. Populations comprise more than young men, however, and increases can be found in other age categories, such as the over-55s.


Kentucky Rural Development, Patrick J. Hooks 2016 Murray State University

Kentucky Rural Development, Patrick J. Hooks

Scholars Week

The main objective of this study is to examine the development of rural areas to more urbanized ones within Kentucky. Landsat images were used to show the urban land cover change over a 10 year span, from 2001 to 2011. The study shows specifically how the city of Louisville has expanded because it was one of the most changed cities in Kentucky during the period of the study. Maps were created from these Landsat images. Studying these developments can help to predict the amount of change that might happen in certain areas in the future. Using geographic information systems (GIS ...


Using Photogrammetry To Document, Analyze, And Reverse-Engineer Grave Markers, Robert Z. Selden Jr. 2016 Center for Regional Heritage Research, Stephen F. Austin State University

Using Photogrammetry To Document, Analyze, And Reverse-Engineer Grave Markers, Robert Z. Selden Jr.

Robert Z. Selden Jr.

There are a wide range of applications for three-dimensional (3D) data in archaeology, and a diverse array of methods for collecting and analyzing those data. In this article, free 3D photogrammetry software (Autodesk 123D Catch) is used to document a series of grave markers. The data are subsequently exported to Geomagic Design X to demonstrate and briefly discuss the various potential analyses that might be used to illustrate the effects of preservation treatments and marker degradation through time. Further, one marker is reverse-engineered, illustrating the capacity of 3D modeling to expedite the process of design, should elements warrant replacement. Additional ...
